Quote of the Week

Quote of the Week

Scholar: Jennie Han

"A life spent entirely in public, in the presence of others, becomes, as we would say, shallow. While it retains its visibility, it loses its quality of rising into sight from some darker ground which must remain hidden if it is not to lose its depth in a very real, non-subjective sense."
-- Hannah Arendt, The Human Condition
